Elin Woods teed off
By now you’ve all heard about Tiger Woods and his car accident. Funny how a celebrity car accident can cause the Internet rumor mill to go crazy.
I’ve been reading and researching for a blog post for my site at About.com. And I have to say this is one of the most interesting celebrity “car accidents” to come along in a long time.
What I find interesting is the reaction from Tiger’s wife Elin to the news that her husband is possibly having an affair. A bit irrational in my opinion!
Never “been there, done that”
First I have to admit to never being faced with such a situation but, please isn’t there something better to do at 2am than scratch your husband’s eyes out? Say sleep for instance!
Call me level headed but there are better ways to deal with the news that your husband may be involved with another woman. Then again, you could call me insensitive for thinking one should not go off the wall at such news.
I’m a “take a step back” kinda woman. One who has to do some investigating and get all her ducks in a row before putting any stock in rumors. Once my ducks are in a row and I find there is an affair, there still won’t be any face scratching or golf clubs involved when I confront my partner.
A woman scorned
Like I’ve already said though, this is not something I’ve been faced with. Who knows, actually living it might turn me into a golf club toting, scorned woman from hell. It might put me in the mood to kick some ass!
All this reading and research and scratching my head over Elin Woods reaction started me thinking about you women out there who have been through this.
Walk a mile in her shoes
- What would I do if I found myself in your shoes?
- What did you do when you found out your husband was having an affair?
- Did you go for a weapon or did you step back and get your ducks in a row before reacting?
- Is over-reacting to news of an affair the typical reaction?
